Figure 14.

Layering of ON and OFF bipolar cell axons in the cat inner plexiform layer (IPL). OFF ganglion cell (αGC and βGC) dendrites and OFF cone bipolar cell axons (OFF cb) co-stratify in sublamina a of the IPL. ON bipolar axons (ON cb) and ON ganglion cell dendrites co-stratify in sublamina b of the IPL. These are the parallel ON and OFF cone pathways that originate with bipolar-cell dendritic contacts with cones. The illustration is modified from Nelson et al, 1978 (100)..
